Talk To Me




I’ve waited,

hopefully sanguine,

for your words of love.

Oh your kisses are sweet, your touches are magic, but you’ll capture my heart with the words you whisper, Lover. 



This weekend, writers, it’s up to you. We want you to choose a word and use it three times in your 33 words. However, it must be either a verb, noun or adjective and the form of the word cannot change, it must appear exactly the same three times.

  17. So true! They say actions speak louder than words; however, it’s difficult to define the meaning behind those actions without the words!

  18. Bonus points for use of the word sanguine! One of my favorite words, and used in such a sexy way, too!
